That a barium drink?

My son has to drink a lovely barium drink tomorrow... he's only 3.5. I dont' know how I'm going to stop him from eating in the morning... he raids the kitchen when I don't hear him wake up and he's a quiet little shit. They scheduled his xrays for 8:30am and he usually gets up about6:30....

 Ha. that's too funny....I'm hoping I don't say anything stupid....I know you can get loopy with the drugs.

My friend from work is taking me......since my dh just got discharged yesterday from the hospital after they removed his kidney on Monday.....

This has just been one fun filled week.....NOT.

 It's Magnesium Citrate....it's clear and has a HORRIBLE after taste.....

But I finally managed to get the last drop down UGH!

I'm not sure...but isn't the barium drink a thick, chalky type drink?  I took something like that when I was a kid and remember I was gagging because of the taste and thick texture of it.....

I wish you and your son the best of luck and hope whatever he is taking it for has a good outcome.

The prep is always worse than the procedure.

 Ha....that's too funny...

Actually it was fine...the worst part was drinking that nasty magnesium citrate......thankfully, I was able to get it all down....total of 3 bottles.......

The procedure was absolutely fine...the nurses were fabulous and they let me keep on my big thick furry socks.....they gave me propafol (I'm sure I spelled that wrong).....(the same drug that Michael Jackson died from)....

When I woke up I felt soooooo rested just like I had taken a long long nap.......

I get the results from the biopsy on Tuesday or Wednesday....but they said everything looked good.

Now that I had it done.....I don't know why I kept postponing it....it really was a very simple procedure....(prep work aside)
